Found this 'orrible fat little b@sterd still alive and wriggling on the carpet tonight after getting back from 2 days mountain biking in Wales - I hope it fell off the dog and not me :o( - Chewwie commonly picks them up but I have never seen one so engorged that it fell off after finishing feeding.........disgusting........I have saved it in a jar..........flush down the loo? or something more imaginative?

Squeeze it from the rear. I did that once and the ticks head flew off, force out by a thin jet of blood.

I burn the wee bastards and get great enjoyment from doing so. I find ones just like that all the the time on the floor that have fallen off my dogs.

feed it blood and see how big you can get it to grow?
